Make Mine a Mini

The saga continues with my Prairie Woman's Circle wall hanging. First of all,  the quilts are supposed to be make-do quilts so we are asked to bring a 6 inch square of a certain color of fabric to swap with another person, then use that in our quilts.  Well, duffus here brought the wrong color so didn't swap it with anyone. Then when I was cutting out my fabric I was working on three projects at once two of which called for 1 1/2 strips of black fabric. Now what do you think the chances of me getting my black fabric mixed up and sewing them into the wrong projects?  I'll tell you, it's 100 percent.
  Then as they say stupid is as stupid does, I did this.



 When I should have done this.
I don't how why I did something so stupid, there were no drugs or alcohol involved.  So with all this trouble I decided to just make mine a mini.

The quilt in the pattern is 25 x 31  with one border.  Mine is 21 by 25  with three borders. And I found a use for four of my four patch mistakes and put them into the corners.  Now I just need to quilt it.

The fabrics are really pretty together and who says we can't change the size of them? Minnie is cute. You may like the size better.

Some of the most beautiful creations happen by "mistake" and this is one of those quilts:) Catching up with my blogging friends, so busy at work these days I miss my visits. Thank you for your constant inspiration and I hope this note finds you well:)
